I know the feeling. You get your new computer set up, you test it out, and you use and enjoy all the programs, including the word processor. Everything is going great until you start getting those annoying messages asking you to key in your "product code" or "referral key." Then you consider buying it online, only to find out it costs over $100. So, you're searching for a Microsoft office professional 2007 referral key free? I was too. The first time, I got one from a friend. The second time, I found an even better alternative. Here are some ideas to get a Microsoft office professional 2007 referral key free.
Ask your friends. Since Microsoft allows the installation of its products on multiple computers owned by the purchaser, your friend might have an extra legal installation of the program. If you already have Microsoft Office Professional installed, simply plug in her referral key and you should be all set. Check with friends who have only once computer or recently upgraded their software. Buy lunch or coffee as a thank-you -- you saved $150!
Check with your company. If you use your home computer or laptop for business work, your computer services at the job might give you a Microsoft office professional 2007 referral key free if they are able.
Swap. Ask on message board and forums you frequent. See if someone has a code they'll share for free or would be willing to swap for one of your software programs.
Consider an alternative. After I couldn't find a Microsoft office professional 2007 referral key free for my second computer (I got the first from a friend) I found out about Open Office, a free computer word processing software suite 100% compatible with Microsoft office Professional 2007. It has many of the same features as well as extras, a and is extremely high quality. Documents can be saved as Microsoft Word 2007 documents for easy sharing with other users who have the Microsoft office suite. Open Office comes with the equivalent of Excel and PowerPoint as well.
Tips & Warnings
- Try Open Office for yourself. It is just as good as Microsoft office, in my humble opinion, and the best part is that it is free for personal use!
